We’re Making Progress, But…

We’ve experienced a lot of change and forward momentum lately from the enhanced rollout of the National Curriculum to revamping our communication tools (newsletters, social media, and website) and even introducing additional education options with online classes and YouTube videos to increase access to qualified and experienced blacksmith educators. But there is so much more to do and we invite you to be a part of that process!
